Last week's question: This week’s question: Google’s self-driving Toyota Priuses have clocked more than 200,000 miles on busy highways and city streets, using radar and computers to avoid obstacles and other cars. BMW and Audi also have prototypes of cars that drive themselves. Please come up with a catchy name for the first mass-produced car that has no need for a human driver.
